Rustbelt Treasures version of Restoration Hardwares covered books  
I used handmade paper that I luckily happened upon at a Dollar General Store, Vintage books I found at a local Thrift store, Lace I found in a lot purchase of vintage sewing notions, and artist paper I found on clearance.
The Restoration Hardware version.
I chose vintage books that had pages with an rough and aged look along their edge. I also tried to find books that were as close as possible in width and height, to look like a set of books.
I printed a Vintage French postage image from Pinterest for the labels along the spines of the books. For these labels I used the artist paper. I hope you will give this project a try, its quick and easy.
